to a wick cover for a release agent management (RAM) system for use in conjunction with a xerographic fuser. The wick cover is an oil diffusive media which contacts the fuser roll for the purpose of applying the silicone oil to the roll in the quantities necessary to maintain release. It also functions as a cleaner, removing extraneous toner, paper fibers and other con-taminents. The cover serves as the replaceable member of the wick RAM, being replaced when contamination levels accumulate to the point of reducing it's primary function of applying oil.
